Making Abe Lincoln’s Mystery Mallet! // “IMPOSSIBLE” Woodworking Joinery

Making Abe Lincolns Impossible Mystery Puzzle Mallet using some pretty crazy woodworking joinery. Tapered Ramped Sliding Dovetails.

Designed was inspired by Roy Underhill’s rendition of the fabled mallet that was made by Abraham Lincoln. I couldn’t find any pictures of drawings of the original, just what Roy had put out and a guy named Stephen Shepherd. I used my dimensions but you can find plans for both Roys and Stephens with a quick google search. Best of luck if you try this yourself, its a super fun project!
